David Ortiz’s Achilles’ tendon isn’t torn; won’t go on DL

Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz does not have a tear or rupture in his Achilles’ tendon and will take some time off, but will not be placed on the disabled list.

Wearing a walking boot around the clubhouse after getting a treatment on his injured Achilles’ tendon Monday night and undergoing an MRI Tuesday, Ortiz guessed that he’d be out for about a week. The plan is to get a second opinion in Miami Wednesday and decide whether he will need to go on the disabled list.
